Ohio Child Support Calculator

Commitment to supporting our children.

The Ohio Child Support Calculator will provide an estimate of the support obligations that may be included in a court or administrative child support order.

Before you get started

You will need to have gross annual income information for at least one parent to get calculation results. Having information for both involved parents will yield more accurate results.

Income can be from employment, self-employment, workers' compensation, unemployment, disability/retirement benefits, or other annual sources of income, as well as overtime, bonuses, and commissions for last three calendar years.

You may want to prepare information about child care expenses, health insurance premiums, pre-existing child support orders, and spousal support amounts for inclusion in the calculation.

Please Note:
This calculator cannot be used to calculate a support obligation for circumstances where the parties have a combined annual gross income above $336,000. If this circumstance applies, you should consider contacting an attorney and/or your local child support enforcement agency.

Disclaimer: For guidance in using this calculator, please see the JFS 07766 Ohio Child Support Guideline Manual. Knowledge of the financial circumstances of both parents as well as an understanding of Ohio family law and Ohio and federal tax law is necessary to complete the worksheet accurately. If you have questions about these, you should consider contacting an attorney.
